Iain Morrison: Repercussions bite for clubs left out of Super 6

This was always a project driven as much by fear of being left behind as it was by any ambition of the clubs to narrow the gap to the professional teams who are, in any comparison, over the hill and half way across the next county.

Super Six or Bust for...Hawks?

The Super Six franchises will be announced on Tuesday and if Glasgow Hawks don’t get the nod there is a very real prospect of the club ceasing to exist according to long-serving member and current president Kenny Hamilton.

Will Super Six be the saviour or slayer of club rugby?

The year ahead promises to be an interesting one for rugby. The best two teams in world rugby will meet for the first time since 2014 and either New Zealand or England will get a huge boost one year out from the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Focused Melrose refuse to take eyes off the prize
